  • LiDAR monitoring coastal erosion

    Subject to intense meteorological events, including windstorms and heavy waves, Corsica has seen significant erosion of its coastline in the past 25 years and a decline in the surface area occupied by seagrass beds. Key to the success of this new initiative will be the Hawk Eye II scanning device, with its capability to capture precision data from both land and seabed terrain simultaneously, in ...

  • WFS Technologies led consortium delivers world’s first real-time networked coastal erosion monitoring system

    A WFS Technologies led consortium has delivered the world’s first real-time networked coastal erosion monitoring system. More than half of the world"s population lives within 60 km of a coastline zone. As changing global climate and rising sea levels speed up coastal erosion, researchers need to monitor what is happening beneath the surface of the sea.  Understanding coastal erosion ...

  • Gully and rill erosion: recent research progress (co-organized)

    Soil erosion has been divided traditionally into sheet, rill, and gully erosion. In rills and gullies, overland flow is concentrated, which markedly increases the erosivity of the flow, and can cause then significant incisions into the landscape. Usually rills occur on sloping surfaces, whereas gullies occur within swales or hollows. Concentrated flow erosion represents an important -if not the ...

  • New data on soil erosion by water reveals Mediterranean at highest flood risk

    Rainfall is one of the principle causes of soil erosion. It breaks apart soil, dislodges it from its surroundings, and washes it away as runoff. These mechanisms have an effect on how much water the soil may hold, how fast water flows over the soil, and even on the soil depth. In a much broader sense soil erosion can negatively affect vegetation growth and yields, as well as water quality, and ...

  • EPA to Require Best Management Practices To Curb Erosion at Construction Sites

    The construction, utility and housing sectors will be required to implement best management practices to prevent erosion at construction sites in lieu of numeric nutrient limits for turbidity in stormwater under a final Environmental Protection Agency rule published March 6 (79 Fed. Reg. 12,661). The new effluent limitations emphasizing best practices to manage erosion and stabilize soils at ...

  • 3D forest reconstruction to improve environmental monitoring

    Knowledge of forests is essential to our understanding and mitigation of climate change. Covering about 30% of global land area, forests play a significant role in the delivery of ecosystem services including climate regulation, carbon storage, biodiversity, prevention of soil erosion and flood mitigation. Forest monitoring programmes, which can assess the impact of natural and anthropogenic ...

  • Monitoring heavy metal contamination in the German Wadden Sea

    Human activities, including industrial development along coastal areas, risk polluting the marine environment with heavy metals which can harm human health and aquatic life. A recent study has found elevated levels of metal pollution in the Jade area of the German Wadden Sea, but concludes that metal contamination of the sediments would not be expected to have harmful effects on the marine ...

  • Drones Take Flight as Part of New Landfill Monitoring Efforts

    Officials in Boise, Idaho, are taking to the air to inspect their landfill. But it’s not with traditional aerial photography. Instead, Ada County has acquired FAA approval to utilize a Small Unmanned Aircraft System (sUAS) or drone to collect high-resolution, 2-D images of its landfill on a more consistent basis. Previously, it used manned flights to get aerial photos once or twice a year. ...

  • Track soil particles moving through watershed

    Soil erosion of croplands, rangelands, and urban areas is one of the most common problems that negatively affects the environment. Soil particles carried by rainwater along slopes may transport a variety of harmful agricultural and industrial chemicals, cause the soil to lose fertility, and inundate streams. Quantifying the movement of soil through watersheds is a complex task, which requires ...
